It is December 26 but there won’t be a Christmas hangover for Sidney and me.
In an hour we will begin a long, but happy, journey. For the first time in a year, we are going to my hometown of Spokane, Washington, to spend the holiday week with my family.
Once again, we will be taking the longest non-stop flight within the United States to get there. However, at both ends of that marathon plane ride we will be doing some additional traveling as well. The first part consists of us driving two hours from Myrtle Beach to Charleston. We will check in at the airport and take the six hour flight to Seattle. We will then backtrack by taking the short 45 minute flight to Spokane. With driving, flying, and layovers we will be looking at about 12 hours of travel. However, all will be worth it once I see my family for the first time since they were in Myrtle Beach for the wedding almost seven months ago.
We have the privilege of spending five fun and relaxing days in Spokane. My family is excited to see pregnant Sidney and to celebrate our Reser Christmas on Wednesday night. The two of us are looking forward to seeing the snow, playing with our niece, and eating west coast food. With a bunch of other little plans worked into our itinerary for the week, it promises to be another awesome trip.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas. Before the year runs out on us, I will be publishing my top ten posts of 2016 as well as my annual end of the year reflection post. Have a great week and please cross your fingers for our smooth and safe travels across the country. Don’t Blink.
